Tara's Power Bowl


Happy Wednesday!

I'm going to start doing real-time What I Ate Wednesdays on Snapchat, so if you're interested in that sort of thing, follow me at SweatStretchEat!

This power bowl recipe is close to the easiest thing on the planet to cook. One of my dearest friends (Tara) made this for Matt and I one time when we came over to her apartment in Brooklyn. I randomly started craving it this week, and texted her for the recipe. It's so simple and so good. Let me know if you try it!
